Accent Pontiac's mission is to strengthen Pontiac's youth and community through equitable access to intensive and consistent music making. Their hope is that all children in Pontiac will achieve their full potential through equal access to quality music learning.
Accent Pontiac began its fourth year of programming on September 23, 2019 with continued programming at Walt Whitman Elementary School and Alcott Elementary School in Pontiac, Michigan. This year, we will serve approximately 280 students with regular programming. In addition to regular programming, Accent Pontiac hosts two week-long workshops each year as well as field trips, assemblies, guest artist performances, and a summer program, and reaches approximately 750 students with exposure to new musical experiences. In addition, we are expanding our partnership with Kirk in the Hills, giving six Accent Pontiac students the opportunity to participate in the Kirk in the Hills Junior Girls and Treble Boys choirs.
